Ottawa coverage

Have Ottawa media been covering the national capital's increasingly visible problem with drug pushers and crack addicts?

No doubt about it, say TSF readers.

"Minister lends support to city's drug solution" - Ottawa Sun

"Ont. minister, mayor to take 'first step' toward Ottawa drug treatment centre" - CBC

"Ottawa drug treatment centre under discussion" - CFRA

"Police chief urges review of scrapped crack pipe program" - CBC

"Doctor questions demise of crack-pipe program" - Ottawa Citizen

"Agencies plan own crack-pipe program" - Ottawa Citizen

Plus an Ottawa Sun story street scene story which is now pay per view.

And, for good measure: A Welcome to Hell on Earth blog posting.

Adequate coverage, we would say.

Add Erin Anderssen's report in the Globe and Mail report in April and Christina Blizzard's column in the Toronto Sun on Friday, and it is safe to say Ottawa's dirty little secret is no longer little, nor secret.
